Okay.  You just need to implement a checker for IUsernamePassword, then.  Add this to a portal wrapped around a realm that knows about IConchUsers and you should be set, as far as authentication goes.

Take a look at twisted/conch/manhole_ssh.py for an idea of what needs to happen to hook manhole up to a conch server.
